Aud Lang Syne: Happy New Year ! ! !

This is an interesting history of the song we sing to ring in the New Year. I did not realize it was written in 1788 by Scottish poet Robert Burns. Read the complete article in The Independent with the words of the original poem and the English translation in case you want to sing along tonight at midnight.

London. New Year's Eve last year.

This was a fun post. As close to a party as I wish to be tonight! They had a story on ALS this evening on All Things Considered, about how it's fading away and young people don't recognize it.
You brought us so many delights this year, Rosemary. Best wishes for 2016.
